Rock Salt

It's always such a hard choice... follow a blog trend, or not?

Well, I just adore Julie's blog, Brown Eyed Belle, and she's doing this one, which I just think is precious, and goes along with what I was thinking, anyway:

The It's Friday, I'm In Love Series
Cute, huh?

Well, this Friday, and any Friday, and any day of any month of every year, I'm in love with:

That's right.  This is my weakness.  I can never resist NYSFC (yes, I even made an acronym).
I know what you're thinking... This is not really healthy.  But what can I say?  
I'm in love.



Funny fact:
When I eat ice cream, I have to drink water.  It makes me so insatiably thirsty.
(That's not funny, but this is...)
When I was younger, I seriously thought that this thirst & ice cream issue came from the fact that ice cream is made with this stuff:

Rock Salt!

And we all know that salt = thirsty.  Right?  So my idea would make sense!
Well, come to find out... rock salt is not actually in the ice cream. Oops.
Come to find out, it has some other purpose.  But it definitely is not in the ice cream.
It goes on the outside... in the ice cream maker... I don't really know why.
That's why I'm an English major.  I'm idealistic.  I promise, it was a good, solid idea...
Either way, thank goodness for whatever it does.  I love me some NYSFC.
Still... why do I get so thirsty?
I told my husband about this idea last night.  He laughed a lot.  I didn't think it was that funny...

  6. i HAVE to have a glass of ice cold water with ice cream, i don't know why!

    the rock salt on the outside makes the ice even colder, to help freeze the liquid into ice cream. when you were little did you ever do that contest where you pour salt on your hand, then put a piece of ice on it and see who could leave it the longest? Cuz it burns you? ha, i never won...

  21. funny. :) You know, I probably would have thought the same thing if I hadn't seen how my grandpa makes his homemade ice cream. And i'm weird with ice cream in the fact that I could take it or leave it. crazy, huh? I would MUCH rather have french fries. so healthy...not. at least you get calcium from the ice cream! :) happy friday!!
